Dr. Feelgood - tracks from 'Be Seeing You' (1977)

Through several personnel changes over a 35+ year history, British pub rock purveyors
Dr. Feelgood have continued to give the people what they want.

Their earliest efforts stand tall among the pioneers of Brit
'proto-punk'.

This raucous '77 LP was produced by Nick Lowe, and was their first release following the departure of the quartet's original guitarist, WIlko Johnson, earlier that year.

Band line-up from '77 to '81:

Vocals, Harmonica -Lee Brilleaux
Drums, Vocals -The Big Figure
Guitar -John "Gypie" Mayo
Bass, Vocals -John B Sparks

From the 'Be Seeing You' LP
(UA Records, 1977),
Listen to Dr. Feelgood:

Ninety-Nine And A Half (Won't Do)
I Thought I Had It Made
I Don't Wanna' Know
That's It, I Quit
Hi-Rise
My Buddy Buddy Friends
Baby Jane
The Blues Had A Baby,
And They Named It Rock 'n Roll (#2)

Looking Back
60 Minutes Of Your Love
